If so, the pharmacy injury lawyers at Baron, Herskowitz and Cohen can help. Our team of dedicated attorneys has years of experience helping clients who suffered irreparable harm from pharmacists who willing or unknowingly made mistakes.

It’s important to know that when a pharmacist prescribes medication they must consider not only the benefit that their patients may receive from the medication, but also the potential harm that could follow.

Pharmacists and pharmacy employees must consider the following – or they could be held accountable for their mistakes:

  • Am I prescribing medicine to the correct person?
  • How will the new medication interact with existing medications?
  • What potential drug reactions could occur?
  • What are the patient’s known allergies?
  • What is the appropriate dosage for the medication?

Like other doctors, pharmacists make decisions that could result in serious short-term health concerns, lifelong health problems – or even the death.

If you or someone in your family has suffered in any way as a result of malpractice, negligence or a medication error, it’s important to speak with an attorney.

Common Mistakes Made by Pharmacists and Pharmacies in Florida

Remember – pharmacists and pharmacies have a duty to fill your prescription correctly. When they do not, they may be found liable for the injuries their mistakes cause to their patients, including:

  • Adverse drug interactions: Pharmacists must ensure that you are not taking multiple medications that could have adverse interactions when taken together. 
  • Allergic reactions: Allergic reactions can be nasty. It’s important that they check your medical history, past and current pharmacy purchases. Many pharmacists are required to ask this simple question before providing medication.
  • Potential negative side effects: Most patients won’t know if their prescribed medication may have bad side effects, but a pharmacist should.
  • Medication mix-ups and mistakes: Pharmacists are responsible with providing you with the correct medication and dosages.
  • Under doses or overdoses: Correctly measuring your dose amounts is important as both under doses and overdoses can negatively impact your health.
